Ifill: Europe's highest court has issued a ruling that could shake up the search-engine industry. The court said that in some cases, Google must remove personal information from search results linked to someone's name, if the person requests it. A Spanish man had found his name still linked to debts from 1998. One of the judges said privacy is paramount. Judge da Cruz Vilaça: ( translated ): as the data subject may, in the light of his fundamental rights request that the information in question no longer be made available to the general public. It should be held that those rights override, as a rule, not only the economic interest of the operator of the search engine but also the interest of the general public in finding that information. Ifill: The ruling is not subject to appeal. In the U.S., some limited search deletions are already required, especially regarding crimes by minors. But it's up to the site that published the information, not the search engine, to remove the link.
